If Italian leather furniture makes your heart go pitter-patter, we'd like you to meet our two new leather sofa designs. Sanford has a modern European vibe with its sleek, sloped lines, and Jamestown turns heads with its modern take on the tufted chesterfield style. Both are American artisan-crafted, made to order, and available in BenchMade's soft, smooth, or nubuck fine leather families. And altogether, you have 23 rich, dimensional colors to choose from.

Why Choose BenchMade Italian Leather Sofas

When it's BenchMade, the art of Old World leathermaking meets the craft of American furniture building. Each sofa is crafted with heart by hand, honoring the quality of the materials and creating something real, honest, and permanent. Of course, only the softest natural Italian leathers are worthy of the BenchMade name. And to highlight the beauty of the style and the leather, we select extra-large hides to limit the number of distracting leather seams.

Sanford is a Sleek, Sloped Contemporary Leather Sofa

Sanford's sleek silhouette has restful sloped track arms, a low seat height, and a low back height. Its solid oak base (which can be finished in any of the BenchMade Oak finishes) has tall, tapered legs to accentuate the modern aesthetic. The neat boxed loose back and seat are handsomely tailored with top-stitch detailing. Sanford is offered as a two-seat sofaloveseat, or chair and ottoman.

Jamestown contemporary leather sofa is a modern take on a classic

Jamestown exudes all the classic tuxedo styling of a beloved chesterfield style sofa with deeply tufted backs and a generous rolled back. This updated version offers wide seat cushions that are untufted to uphold the sofa’s clean lines. The simple block legs bestow a casual feel in any finish. Jamestown is available in the two-seat sofaloveseat, or chair and ottoman

Both the Sanford and Jamestown frame styles offer generous seating space (a 24” seating depth) so you can get comfortable relaxing, entertaining guests, or even working from home. The solidly built frames are designed and engineered using premium components and construction that includes interlocking laminated hardwood panels that are precision cut for a perfect fit, and masterfully assembled in our North Carolina factory. The resilient coil spring seating system ensures individual seating comfort and longevity. What’s your preference for cushioning? To make sure you get the comfort you want, BenchMade leather comes with three seat cushion options.

Dressed to caress in exquisite Italian leathers, Sanford and Jamestown translate distinctive character, color, and elegant details. And yes, these BenchMade leather frames can be dressed in fabric instead of leather, allowing you to bring your design vision to life. Simply bellissimo.
